Dick Cavett had some nice things to say.

RIP - JW

Excellent, Don. Thanks for that link. Another clip on YouTube that cracks me up every time is of Johnathan at the Dean Martin Roast of Frank Sinatra during which Winters pretends to have been Sinatra's bus driver on road trips. Hilarious.

And one of my jobs in this house is to take the burnable garbage down to the collection bin twice a week. Naturally I immitate Winters in a "Hefty" commercial saying "We men in garbäge"...

Wonderful man, comedic genius.

And here is part two of Cavett's recollections

I am imagining you doing the garbage bit... :)

Thanks Don, for putting up the link to the second installment. Interesting comments by Cavett regarding how badly managed his TV shows were at times - putting in props and actors to take the place of the audience's imagination. Unbelievable.
